THE ANTIQUE CITY OF ANCHIALE
Anchiale was the Titan goddess of the warming heat of fire. She was the wife of Hekateros, the Titan-god of the hands, and mother of the metal-working Daktyloi, literally the Fingers. These rustic gods lived on the slopes of Mount Ida (either the Kretan or Phrygian mountain), and together represented the power of fingers and hands to create and utilize fire. Indeed, it was Ankhiale’s own brother Prometheus who stole fire from heaven for mankind.
